The Calgary Flames have sent injured defenseman Mark Giordano back to Alberta, and he will not be in the lineup on Monday night against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Giordano sustained an upper-body injury when he fell awkwardly in a game last week against the New Jersey Devils. Though Giordano took the ice for the warmup skate ahead of this weekend's game against the New York Islanders, he was unable to play. 

He may be unable to play for a while, though the Flames aren't exactly being forthcoming about his timeline at the moment.

Flames' GM Treliving on Glencross trade: 'We're trying to navigate parallel paths'

If the Curtis Glencross trade on Sunday tells us anything of long-term import about the Calgary Flames organization, it tells us that they're keeping their surprising success in perspective. 

Little was expected of the rebuilding Flames this season. They were widely regarded as a team that was too limited up front to hang with the big three from California, or even the aging Vancouver Canucks, in the tough Pacific Division. Instead, with 20 games to play, the Flames are in the thick of the Western Conference playoff race.

It's perhaps somewhat surprising to see a team that could sensibly have been looking to buy at the trade deadline, instead turn around and sell a still useful veteran piece like Glencross. Brad Treliving has a plan, it would appear, and he's sticking to it.
